It ALMOST Happened Again
There’s a scene in the movie Back to the Future that I love. It’s when Marty McFly finds that his friend Doc Brown is alive, thanks to a letter Marty gave Doc Brown in 1955.
Well, that same scene basically just played out in my library.
If you’ve read this blog for a while, you know the saga of our Origami Yoda READ poster.
After Origami Yoda fell behind the shelf, we vowed to never – NEVER – let that happen again.
The other day I walked into the library and – oh no.
But, just like Doc Brown,
we used information from the past to help the present.
And avoid disaster.
Oh yes. Our Origami Yoda READ poster escaped death, thanks to
a letter from 1955 a folded up piece of paper taped to the back so it was too thick to fall down the crack behind the shelf.
